This Little Known Beach In Michigan Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All

There’s nothing better than a Michigan summer. Beautiful sunsets, quality time with family, evening cookouts, and Tigers games are quintessential elements of a getaway in the Great Lakes State. But nothing says summer in Michigan quite like a day at the beach, and Olive Shores on the west coast of the state is a lesser-known spot to beat the heat while indulging in Michigan’s natural beauty.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Here is a scene from YouTube user SMovieClips showing Olive Shores in “Road To Perdition.” Be forewarned that this clip includes some violence (and spoilers if you haven’t already seen it).
